Liz Deskins has spent 20 years in school librarianship. It has been a fun-filled time, fueled by many literacy initiatives and changes in education. She has learned a great deal from whole language, literature based teaching, project based learning, inquiry learning, and the Literacy Collaborative reading model, but mostly that skills are needed to read as well as exposure to quality literature. Her passion for children’s literature, and sharing it with students of all ages, has led her to a Master’s degree with a focus on literature for children and given her opportunities to teach at the college level.
